Abstract:Clinical leadership is a primary focus of the emerging NHS. The Health and Social Care Bill 2011 places great emphasis on clinicians driving the proposed redesign of the NHS, through clinically led commissioning groups, and service transformation underpinned by the Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention (QIPP) programme.
There are multiple opportunities for in-depth leadership development outside of standard clinical training, including Clinical Fellowships funded by the National Leadership Council (NLC), now a part of the NHS Leadership Academy.
This paper highlights key findings of a survey of 99 Leadership Fellows from a range of different leadership programmes, providing an insight into the motivations of clinical Leadership Fellows, their future career intentions and their feedback about the Fellowship schemes of which they have been a part.
